Adv. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner

Israeli activist attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner has been leading

the legal fight against terror financing, the anti-Israel boycott

campaigns (BDS) and combating the multitude of lawfare tactics

utilized against the Jewish State by its enemies. As the president of

the Israel based civil rights organization, Shurat HaDin–Israel Law

Center, she has represented hundreds of terror victims in legal

actions against terror organizations and their supporters. Ms. Darshan-Leitner has successfully recovered more than two

hundred million dollars in compensation on their behalf. In recent

years, Ms. Darshan-Leitner initiated a legal campaign to deprive

terrorists of social media resources such as Facebook, Twitter, and

YouTube, which they use to incite violence against Jews and

promote terror attacks. In her efforts to combat anti-Semitism and

anti-Israeli activities, Ms. Darshan-Leitner assisted in blocking the

Gaza Flotilla, terminated efforts to indict IDF soldiers for war

crimes, and filed legal actions against those who boycott Israeli

academics and companies in violation of the law. Staffed by some

of Israel's leading activist attorneys, Shurat HaDin–Israel Law Center follows the model of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the famed American civil rights organization dedicated to bankrupting the KKK and other neo-Nazi groups in the United States with the goal to economically destroy the hate groups in the Middle East. Thus, the organization's motto: "Bankrupting Terrorism – One Lawsuit at a Time!" She and her associates specialize in tracking the assets and bank accounts of terror groups and legally obstructing and restraining their funds. They have become known by banks, legal organizations and outlaw regimes around the world as the leading authority and resource on stopping the movement of global terror financing. Today they represent hundreds of terror victims in lawsuits against Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PLO, The Palestinian Authority, Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, Egypt, North Korea, UBS, and the Lebanese Canadian Bank. The cases, being litigated in Israeli, American, Canadian and European courts, allow the victims of terrorism to fight back. In 2016, Ms. Darshan-Leitner was chosen as one of the 50 most influential Jews in the world by the Jerusalem Post, and named by the Israeli Forbes magazine as one of the 50 most influential Israeli women. A mother of six, including triplets, Ms. DarshanLeitner is a graduate of the Bar-Ilan University Law Faculty and holds an MBA from Manchester University.
